kool craft

okay, enough of the politics!
My sister-in-law gave me a VERY simple recipe for play dough. She is a physical and occupational therapist for children and she loves this recipe because it not only gets the child using it with his/her hands, but it also uses the sense of smell!

Kool-Aid play dough
1/2 cup of salt
1 cup flour
3 Tbls oil
1 pkg kool-aid

Mix together ingredients and add 1 cup of boiling water. Knead until soft and put into sealed container.

She did mention that it stains your fingers just a little at first - especially the kneading part, but it was the most awesome smelling play dough! I wanted to eat it! Best thing is....if you have a little kiddo that DOES like to eat things that he/she shouldn't - this won't harm him/her in any way because it's made out of edible ingredients!

Have fun!!
